School Grants


The Strafford County Master Gardeners Association is committed to providing research-based gardening education to communities in Strafford County.

In 2018, we created this grant program to assist K-12 school teachers in their gardening programs.

The grant is named in honor of Carolyn Bassage, an educator, who was instrumental in forming the SCMGA.

To find out if your school is participating in this program, ask your principal or send an email to SCMGA.grants(at)gmail(dot)com.
